Newspaper headlines capture emotion of Saints loss

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Newspaper headlines across the nation are depicting fan's heartbreak after the Saints lost to the Vikings Sunday night.

The Saints defied the odds by making the playoffs after an 0-2 start, but their march to a Super Bowl ended prematurely with a heart-breaking 29-24 loss to the Vikings in Minneapolis. The Saints held a 24-23 lead late, but a 61-yard pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs as time expired gave the Vikings the victory.

Our partners | The-Times Picayune summed up the loss in a three-word headline.

The New-Orleans Advocate tapped into fan's pain while also drawing from musical influences for their headline.

On the opposite end, Vikings fans were greeted to a more celebratory headline on the front page of The Star Tribune.
